Tilda Hangs a Star at Just Magnolia

A very happy Saturday to everyone! I hope you are beginning a magnificent weekend! I woke up this morning to 29 degree (F) weather and snow flurries all over the I am hoping as the day goes on that the weather will at least warm up a little bit...BUT tonight is supposed to be colder!! It is not supposed to be this cold so early in the year. And for those of you leaving DST, don't forget to change those clocks!!

I have some EXCITING news for you today!! I have been invited by Paul and Siri to join the magnificent Design Team of Wild Orchid Crafts which has the most gorgeous selection of flowers and embellishments in all of Cyberia!! If you have never visited their shop, it is a real experience!!! So drop by and see what you think of their lovely flowers! Gosh, I feel like Br'er Rabbit being thrown in the briar patch. As much as I love using flowers on my cards, I feel like I'm in heaven!!! Big smile!!!

At Just Magnolia this week we have our Special Monthly Challenge which as always is sponsored by Heidi and her team from Simon Says Stamp with a $30 voucher, and she even pays the shipping! With over 100,000 items in stock, Simon is proud to offer the best selection of Rubber Stamps, Scrapbooking, Artist Trading Cards, Altered Art, and Paper Crafting Supplies in the world! The theme for our Special Monthly Challenge is "Anything Goes". But this month we have added the option of using Beads on your creation. You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice and as long as the main image on your creation is a Magnolia stamp you will qualify to be in the draw for the fab prize. And remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. The challenge closes next Thursday 11th November 8pm.

For my DT Sample card, I used Bazzill for the base and all matting. The Magnolia DP is from the new Merry Little Christmas Paper Pack at Magnolia-licious. All background panels were machine stitched. I used the precious little Tilda With Hanging Star from the A Merry Little Christmas Collection also available at Magnolia-licious. This little angel along with several others fit wonderfully in the round Nesties. You will find the new Christmas Collection listed as Merry Christmas 2010 on the left sidebar at the shop. I just love every single stamp in this new collection--they are absolutely darling and so many of them can be used for other occasions and events. Back to my card...this cutie was colored with Copics, adding Starlight Stickles for the wings and Gold Spica for the star. For the vertical treatment I used wide eyelet lace, a pink stitched grosgrain and some gorgeous Sparkling White Velvet. For the horizontal I used some bead trim to repeat the ornaments on the DP. AND for the floral treatment I used all sizes and kinds of pink roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. Aren't those rosebuds the sweetest little things?!?!

For the inside of my card I wanted to hang some more ornaments and use the same ribbon treatment as the front. So how did I do on beads??

I hope you like my little creation and will join with us this week at the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog...remember ANYTHING GOES with the option of BEADS!!!! We would love for you to grab one of your Maggies and have fun along with us!!!

Thank you so much for dropping by to see what little Tilda is up to this fine day and we hope you will come back and see us often. It tickles out hearts to see that you have visited...Have a wonderful evening and until we next meet, BIG MAGGIE HUGS for YOU!!!

I am absolutely convinced that I commented on this card when you first posted it. I remembered thinking how much I loved your ribbon with the gems on it but I can't find my comment so maybe I oohed and aaahed but didn't actually let you know. So... ooooh, aaaah - this is soooooo pretty! Warmest wishes, Lesley
